I am trying to make a device that can go up or down a screw by twisting a knob, kind of like a wing nut, but the wing would be sideways (I suppose). To clarify what I mean by this, please see a simplified version in a diagram below.
I think this type of engineering has already been used in various devices, such as a microscope, where the course adjustment knob will raise or lower the "stage" of the microscope.
Does anyone know where a part/device like this could be found, or how I would go about making something similar?
Thank you so much for your time and kindness,
